Stanadard User account, thus bypassing the Welcome screen? Easy, just “Log off” or “Switch user” from
Standard User account and you will be taken to the Welcome screen. You can then log on to any User.

To avoid each version of Office trying reconfigure itself each time you go back and forth between versions
(IE: between Word 2003 and Word 2010), follow this Registry change for each version installed.
First open Word on the older version of Office and let it initialize.

SECURE YOUR PC:
It is not safe to do your browsing or daily activities using an “Administrator” authority account.
Make sure there is only ONE Administrator level user account on your PC. All other user accounts should be
“Standard users”. “Standard users” do not have the authority to install programs or malware.
To lock down your PC, follow these steps:
From your main user account, go to
(Control Panel > User accounts and family safety > User accounts > Add or remove
user account > Create a new account).
Create a new account with the name Admin-xxxx. (Where xxxx is any
name you like). Make sure to check the box for “Administrator” and d NOT “Standard user” for this new
Click “Add a password”, and create any password tha a t you can easily remember. It does not necessarily
have to be a strong password unless your PC is in an insecure location.
Once you have successfully created and logged into this new password protected “Admin-xxxx” user
account, go to the next step.

From your new “Admin-xxxx” account, change all your r regular user accounts to “Standard user”.
Panel > User accounts and family safety > User accounts
Select an account and click “Change the account type, then click the
“Standard user” box).
You now have an extra level of protection from Trojans and other malware while working and browsing,
because now malware cannot install itself without you entering the Admin password.

How to make Windows 7 sound like XP. I have not found a quick way to do this, but my method does work for
many of the sounds. Some Windows 7 sounds are fixed and cannot be modified even with a scheme change.

On an XP system, go to the "C:\windows\media\" folder and copy all the .wav files into a folder named:
Copy this folder to a flash drive, and then into the Windows 7 "C:\windows\media" folder

STARTUP PROGRAMS & SERVICES MANAGEMENT
It appears that Windows 7 no longer has a built-in program startup manager.
See my chart at the end of this document for a guide to finding the "Startup" Folders.
Registry Startups can be changed using the System Configuration Window. Either do Start > Run: msconfig
(then the Startup Tab) or (Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > System Configuration
> Startup tab).
I prefer using a program called "Codestuff Starter" or Glary Utilities which allow me to manage all kinds of
startups from one window. You can also use it to kill unwanted processes and Windows Services.

SYSTEM REPAIR DISK, aka "Windows 7 Repair Disk", aka “Windows 7 Repair CD”
To create a system repair disk:
Note that if you choose to download the disk image rather than burn it from inside Windows 7, you must
choose the correct version for your system: 32-bit or 64-bit.
32-BIT or 64-BIT? If the PC will not boot, how do you determing whether to use the 32-bit or 64-bit Repair
disk. If you can boot UBCD4WIN or linux from CD, try navigating to the C Drive and look for the folder:
C:\Program Files (x86). If it exists, then it is a 64-bit system, since 32-bit systems do not use this folder.
